    Hi there. Not recommended. Never a good idea to mix frog species there excrement's can be toxic to one another.

    I think you meant secretions not excrement.

    I second what Ebony said, with the clarification that it is secretions that are toxic and not feces.

    I might be wrong on this as I don't own either one of these species of frogs, but don't White's Tree Frogs get bigger than Red Eyed Tree Frogs? It would be horrible if one mistook the other for a meal.

    I believe you're right. I don't have much experience with the red eyed, but all the ones I've seen are quite a bit smaller than the White's. So maybe if you had a full grown White's, it would eat the red eye. But, of course, the secretions would be a huge worry as well.

    No.

    Do NOT mix species. Especially Litoria caerulea with smaller species, since they will eat anything that fits in their mouths. It might sound like a good idea to mix them when they're the same size, but don't. Only because of the fact that frogs do grow, and when the white's get bigger than the other species it's housed with, it will eat it.
